Is PDC Energy stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing PDC Energy stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of PDC Energy's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

PDC Energy's P/E ratio

PDC Energy's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, PDC Energy shares trade at around 3x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

PDC Energy's PEG ratio

PDC Energy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.02. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into PDC Energy's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.


PDC Energy's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.4 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a PDC Energy's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

PDC Energy share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 14.65% of net profits

Recently PDC Energy has paid out, on average, around 14.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.17% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PDC Energy shareholders could enjoy a 2.17% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PDC Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $1.5 per share.

While PDC Energy's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that PDC Energy is investing more in its future growth.

PDC Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 21 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 June 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

PDC Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, PDC Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $70.63 up to $76.04. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PDCE.US volatility(beta: 2.48)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while PDC Energy's is 2.4846. This would suggest that PDC Energy's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
